As we prepare for the upcoming NWSL season, we’ve been soliciting your feedback about travel, the Riveters website, etc. in an effort to provide the best possible resources for supporters. Hopefully this will be our last request for your feedback for a little while!
The opening game of the 2017 NWSL season for Thorns FC will be at Providence Park, hosting the Orlando Pride April 15.
This will be a rare “double header”; Thorns taking the pitch at 12:00 noon and Timbers playing at 7:30 p.m.
The Thorns vs. Pride match will be televised as Lifetime Game of the Week. (Lifetime is available through local cable providers- but of course, we expect to see most of you in the stadium.)
Portland is 4-0-0 in home openers, and last season won against the Pride 2-1.
Let’s Go Thorns!
We have another poll question today, and it concerns the content of this website. We want the Rose City Riveters website to be a quality resource for supporters- but to do so effectively, we need to know what you want!
Can you give us a minute of your time today? Thanks! And please feel free to expand on your thoughts in the comments.
It’s been a long off-season; let’s go plant some trees!
The Rose City Riveters will be participating in the March 4th Saturday tree plant with Friends of Trees at Errol Heights. All ages are welcome (volunteers under 18 will need a signed waiver) and all Riveters are welcome.
From Friends of Trees:
Please arrive by 8:45am to register and be assigned to a planting crew. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather: wear sturdy shoes/boots (rubber rain boots are perfect if you have them), rain-proof layers are always great, and be prepared to get a little dirty. We provide gloves, tools, and planting guidance–as well as breakfast snacks and hot coffee/tea to get everyone fueled up. We’ll be planting hundreds of native trees and shrubs to improve watershed health and add beauty to this special site — and this work wouldn’t be possible without volunteer groups like yours!
If you have any questions, feel free to email this event’s organizer Hannah Mueller: firstname.lastname@example.org
